The brand of knives and folding knives Aitor was founded in 1939 by the Izaguirre family in the town of Ermua in the Basque country (Spain), very close to the famous gunsmithing town of Éibar. In its early days, the brand spent years selling its products under the name Iher (Izaguirre Hermanos), which over the years changed to the name Aitor. Since its inception they have been able to offer very good quality knives and folding knives, exporting their products to practically every country in the world. They have supplied cutlery to armies around the world and its great president Don Pedro Mari Izaguirre Hacha was the person who took the brand to its maximum exponent. Unfortunately, Pedro Mari passed away and Aitor suffered continuous drops in sales and continuous changes of companies that managed it until its closure in 2002. Later, in 2007, they reopened their doors very close to their old location and began to resume a large number of its variety of previous models and to take contracts with armies of the world to this day. Its Jungle King, Oso Negro (Mount Knife), Commando, Bucanero, Bowie, Botero, Bolomachete, Survival and knife models such as Commando, Gran Capitán, Rehala, Brama, are well known by users, professionals and collectors.
